by Dick Townsend-Smith 

THREE books containing hundreds of 
tributes to soldier Lee Rigby have been 
presented to his regiment on behalf of the 
people of the Royal Borough of Greenwich. 

They were handed over by the Mayor, Cllr 
Angela Cornforth, to the Royal Regiment 
of Fusiliers at their Tower of London 
headquarters last Monday 

Local people queued to sign the books at 
Woolwich Town Hall in Wellington Street 
after the death of Drummer Rigby in 
nearby John Wilson Street on May 22. 

Visitors from as far away as California, 
Spain and Australia left poignant tributes, 
alongside messages from serving soldiers, 
faith groups and ordinary local people. 

One said: “Such a waste of a young, 
innocent life. May your rest in peace.” 

Another said simply “You will never be 
forgotten, from a soldier’s family.” 

One was signed “from the mother of two 
soldiers in the Scots Guards”, and another 
came from “the mother of a new recruit”. 

Cllr Cornforth was joined by Lieutenant 
Colonel Bob Christopher and Major (Retd) 
Les Carr from the Royal Artillery Barracks 
in Woolwich to hand over the books 
to Secretary of the Royal Regiment of 
Fusiliers, Brigadier Ian Liles. 

Lt- Col Christopher, who commands 
the Woolwich barracks, said: “These kind 
messages of condolence will mean a great 
deal to Fusilier Rigby’s family, and it is

Plenty for the punter, 
but is it really right? 

I was having a very 
enjoyable cappuccino in 
the Coffee Lounge today, a 
great place to chill out in 

As I left, I stood awhile to 
admire the new General 
Gordon square and its water 

As I looked around I noticed 
that two betting shops also 
occupy space in the old 
Equitable building. 

I thought this was unusual 
to see... next door to each 

Then I realised just across 
the road were two more, on 
Greens End, less than 50 
yards from the first two. 
Without having to take a 
step in any direction I then 
spotted another in the old 
Barclays Bank building. 

And then a new one just 
about to open next door to 
the new Barclays Bank. 

To finish off I then spotted 
Corals on Beresford Square. 
Seven betting shops, without 
having to take one step. 

Is this Woolwich or Las

• The council shares your 
concerns regarding the 
clustering of betting shops 
in Woolwich. This is not only 
a problem in Woolwich. But 
unfortunately licensing law 
does not currently allow the 
council to take into account 
the number of betting shops 
already in the borough. 
Ultimately these issues can 
only be resolved by a change in 
national legislation. 

The royal borough recently 
refused a betting shop licence 
application in Greenwich and we 
await the outcome of the appeal. 
Councils all over the country 
urged the Government to change 
the law and let us cut down on 
the number of betting shops.

I LIVE on the Upper Brook 
Estate SE3, 1 have reported to 
Cleansweep the state of the

I have noticed that, at 
the bottom of the estate, 
Carnbrook Road - where there 
is a council yard - the council 
sweeps that road every 
morning, but not the rest of 
the estate. 

If the roads and pavements 
are not swept, that is why we 
have weeds and grass growing 
in the kerbs and on the 

I would point out to the 
person who drew up this 
schedule, that most of us pay 
our council tax and is it too 
much to ask that our roads 
and pavements are swept 
once a week and kept 
clear of grass and 
weeds and free from 
the build up of dirt 
in the kerbs? 

It seems that no 
one has been out to 
address the problem. 

I was under the 
impression that

the expected standard. The royal 
borough sweeps the estate and 
all the roads in the borough over 
the course of a week. 

Carnbrook Road is the only 
local road scheduled to be 
swept daily because of the 
number of visitors and shoppers. 
Operatives are instructed to

end of each road weekly, except 
for the large play area, which is

Minister hails care project 

SUCCESS STORIES: Health minister 
Norman Lamb and Cllr John Fahy hear 
how Tom and Maureen were helped 

Patients praise joined up 
health and care thinking 

by Dick Townsend-Smith 

A PIONEERING project that provides 
‘joined up’ health and social care in 
the royal borough has been given 
top-level praise. 

Health minister Norman Lamb saw 
the success of the project at first hand 
when he visited the Memorial Hospital on 
Shooters Hill last Wednesday. 

The Government has declared 
Greenwich one of just 14 pioneer projects 
in the country which will spearhead 
the kind of integrated working that the 
Government wants to see nationwide. 

Mr Lamb said: “To hear these stories 
about people getting great care is very 
inspiring. I’m determined to get this 
sort of care everywhere. We can do 
things in a much smarter way like 
here in Greenwich, with people coming 

Builder Tom Ducey, 46, from Plumstead, 
had severe weight problems for two years, 
suffering leg ulcers and depression. 

He needed a zimmer fame to walk and 
couldn’t manage at home. He said: “It all 
started to change when my sister made 
just one phone call. 

“The health and social care people 
stepped in. They changed my life 
completely, giving me exercises to do, 
with physio and occupational therapy, 
and a diet plan. They kept with me to 
make sure I would be able to look after 

“Before they helped me I was more than 
40 stone and hadn’t worked for two years. 
I’ve now lost 21 stone and feel completely 
different and I’m determined to go back to 
my job. It’s an incredible service.” 

Maureen Luxford, 75, from Glendale 
Close, Eltham, faced going into 

residential care after heart surgery - 
until the service changed all that, with 
four daily visits. 

The former waitress said: “Immediately 
I came out of hospital the team came in 
to help me get up in the morning and get 
dressed, bring me lunch, and come again 
in the evening. It’s a wonderful service.” 

The system brings the borough’s health 
and social care professionals together, 
supported by the council and Greenwich 
Action for Voluntary Service. It has: 

• A joint emergency team (JET) that 
provides a fast response to prevent 
unnecessary admissions into A&E and 
rapid referrals for urgent social care 

• Community assessment and 
rehabilitation teams providing up to six 
weeks rehabilitation, then social care 

• An advanced dementia service with 
the Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust 
providing joined up services that help 
patients end their days at home 

• An integrated hospital team 
discharging people quickly to social care. 

The project has saved £2 million, halved 
the number of people sent for social 
care, saved £1 million in social care, and 
prevented many hospital admittances. 

Feedback says one in three people would 
have gone to A&E if the JET team had not 
been involved. A similar number would 

have continued to “struggle at home”. 

Cllr John Fahy, cabinet member for 
health, adults and older people, said: 
“We are delighted that the Government 
has recognised the innovative work. 

“Patients and their carers so often 
experience frustration at being passed 
between different agencies for different 
elements of their care and treatment. 

“To have all the agencies working 
together is already making a huge 
difference. To have voluntary groups 
involved is also making a big difference, 
as they play a key role in helping people 
to make the best use of local support 

with Lee's 

From page 1 C 

important that people see 
than the books have now 
been passed on.” 

Cllr Cornforth said: “Our 
links with the military go 
back generations, and the 
tragic killing of Drummer 
Lee Rigby here on the 
streets of Woolwich deeply 
affected everyone who lives 
or works in the borough. 

“Hundreds of people 
queued to sign the books 
of condolence at the Town 
Hall. I was honoured and 
humbled to present them 

to his regiment on behalf 
of our residents. 

“I’ve read all the 
condolences and I was very 
proud of the messages sent 
by people of the borough, 
in particular some of 
the messages from Lee’s 
friends. My thoughts are 
with his family at this sad 

The books will be handed 
to Fusilier Rigby’s family 
by his regiment. 

• Two men are due to 
stand trial at the Old 
Bailey shortly accused of 
murdering Lee Rigby.

Review ordered on street trading licences 

AS THE first of the new 6-month street trading 
licences come up for renewal, the Royal Borough 
has announced a review of the system, following 
a debate at last week's Full Council meeting, 
which will involve consultation with traders, 
residents and other interested groups. The full 
details of the consultation process are set to be 
released over the next few weeks in Greenwich 
Time and on the Council's website. It is hoped 
that local residents and businesses will take the 
opportunity to make their thoughts known. 

The Royal Borough introduced the street 
trading licensing scheme earlier in the year 
to ensure that businesses that wanted to 
extend their trade onto the pavement could 
do so in a way which also ensured the safety 
of pedestrians, including the partially sighted, 
wheelchair and pushchair users. 

Before that time, the Royal Borough was one 
of only two London Boroughs without a street 
trading scheme in place. 

The trading fee for the first square metre is £7 
perweekand £3.50 per weekfor any extra square 
metres, which are lower than many councils. By 
comparison in Bexley there is a flat fee of £900 
per year and in Bromley businesses pay up to 
£2768 per year for the same space which would 
only cost £364 in the Royal Borough. 

Although some businesses have welcomed 
the opportunity to legally trade on the street for 
the first time, there have been concerns raised 
by other businesses who did trade without a 
licensing system and have been asked to pay a 
fee for the first time. 

At last week's Full Council meeting, Councillor 
Chris Roberts the Leader of the Council 
responded to these concerns by instructing 
officers to carry out a review of the system and 
consult with local businesses and all interested 
groups in order to: 

• Enable the Council to enforce against 
obstruction on the footpath to the benefit of 
the public. 

• Provide a regime to properly regulate for a 
number of businesses which wish to continue 
with a Street Trading licence. 

• Re-examine how the scheme might impact 
less upon smaller businesses. 

Full details of the review will be released in the 
near future. The revision will also need to ensure 
that the Royal Borough has the necessary 
powers to enforce against obstructions to 
pavements if traders go beyond the space they 
have been approved to use. 

Councillor Roberts said: "The Royal Borough 
welcomes the major contribution that well- 

managed, high-quality, street trading makes in 
creating an exciting and welcoming addition to 
our local shops and restaurants. The aim of the 
street trading policy is to allow this to continue 
in a way which is good for businesses and 
safeguards pavement users. 

"I appreciate that despite the need to have 
a fair and workable system of street trading in 
place, the Royal Borough could have done more 
to engage with businesses. This review will allow 
us to look at how the scheme is working so far 
and also balance the issues of safety against our 
aim to continue to support local traders." 

With Christmas just a few weeks away GT will 
be reminding readers about the fantastic local 
offerings. Our three town centres have a great 
range of seasonal activities and events and of 
course our local shops and businesses right 
across the borough provide a mix of affordability 
and quality- so perfect for Christmas shopping. 

Shopping locally is great for the pocket 
with lower transport costs and gives our hard 
working local businesses a boost - which in turn 
is all good news for the local economy.

Christmas events at

A BRIGHT future and a historic past 
were brought together last week 
when the newly renovated Orangery 
Studios were officially opened. 

The historic building in Eltham will now 
provide high quality, contemporary work 
space for seven businesses, with four 
offices leased already. 

They have been delivered by the 
Greenwich enterprise board and the 
royal borough with small businesses 
specifically in mind. 

Cllr Chris Roberts, the council leader, 
Eltham MP Clive Efford and Nigel Barker, 
of English Heritage, were among guests 
at the official opening of the new facilities 
on Orangery Lane last Thursday. 

High quality affordable business space is 
vital for the local economy and the royal 
borough is seeking to upgrade business 
areas, improve access and connectivity, 
and support local businesses in every way 

The revamped offices are part of the 
borough’s Eltham masterplan. 

The developments at the Orangery are 
a remarkable turnaround for the historic 
building, which was built in 1717 and once 
stood in the grounds of Eltham House. 

Through years of neglect it fell into ruin 
and was listed on the architectural ‘at 
risk’ register by English Heritage. 

However, in 2007, Orangery Lane 
building was taken over by the enterprise 

It’s director Michael Finlay was delighted 
with the opening, saying: “We genuinely 
believe the centre of Eltham is already 
benefiting from this diversification of 
its business base, as small businesses of 
many kinds can prosper alongside the 
traditional retailers.” 

Cllr Roberts said: “I’m delighted that the 

new offices at the historic Orangery have 
been officially opened and are available 
for small business to utilise. 

“The royal borough recognises how 
important small businesses are to the 
economy and identity of Greenwich and 
we will do everything in our power to help 
them grow.”

THE Royal Borough is setting up a 
heritage trust to protect and enhance 
some of its most famous and loved 
historical buildings. 

Such treasures tend to be very expensive 
to maintain and the borough is seeking 
the best solution to protect and enhance 
them for the benefit of residents. 

The not for profit trust will make it 
easier for residents to have a greater say 
in the futures of sites such as Charlton 
House and possibly The Tudor Barn. It 
will also make it easier to access different 
types of funding for maintenance. 

The trust would be led by a group of 
independent individuals. 

Other treasures being considered for the 
trust’s care include war memorials and 
the Greenwich Heritage Centre. 

The Tudor Barn is a Grade II listed 
building built in the 16 th century by the 
family of William Roper. It has links back to 
King Henry VIII and the Tudor Monarchy 
and is the only Tudor Barn in London. 

Cllr Chris Roberts, the council leader, 
said: “We are extremely proud of our 
historic and heritage legacy here in the 
royal borough. 

“Not only are we honoured to have such 
a rich selection of historical buildings 
and memorials here, we know they are a 
huge asset to the borough in terms of the 
interest they create. 

“First and foremost, they are much 
loved by our communities and are a really 
important link to our past. 

“For this reason, we want to make sure 
we continue to make the most of our 
heritage and historical places of interest. 

“A trust model has worked well in other 
parts of the country and would be an 
excellent way to both protect and enhance 
the buildings and to allow the community 
itself to play a bigger role in looking after

Cold call warning 

DAMAGE: A tree uprooted by the St Jude's Day storms in Woolwich 

RESIDENTS are being 
warned against opportunist 
rogue traders offering to 
carry out work in the light 
of damage caused by the 
St Jude’s Day storms last 

The borough escaped the 
worst of the storm, with 
relatively minor damage 
and no serious casualties 

A tree down at the junction 
of Woolwich New Road 
and Grand Depot Road is 
an example of the sort of 
damage which occurred, 
while public transport was 
in chaos, with buses delayed 
and trains cancelled or 

As people recover from 
the aftermath, however, the 
royal broough is aiming to 
ensure that any residents 
needing repairs to damaged property find suitable 

Residents are being urged to check if elderly 
neighbours need assistance or advice and, if work 
is needed, to go through personal recommendation 
or access the Greenwich What Trader scheme. 

Cllr Maureen O’Mara, the borough’s cabinet 
member for community safety, said: “We would 
like to advise residents to choose a trader carefully 
and, in particular, be wary of cold callers who 
might be trying to take advantage of the situation 
caused by last week’s storm. 

“We would recommend that residents get three 
quotes for the work, ask for recommendations 
from family and friends or choose someone from 
the Greenwich What Trader scheme.” 

The Greenwich What Trader scheme can be found 
or alternatively contact the borough’s Trading 
Standards on 020 8921 8223 for details of traders 
on the scheme. 

• Anyone who thinks they have been a victim 
of a scam should contact the Citizens Advice 
Consumer Helpline on 08454 04 05 06 who can 
advise you further.

Hospital decision welcomed 

THE royal borough has 
welcomed the Court 
of Appeal ruling that 
Health Secretary Jeremy 
Hunt did not have power 
to implement cuts at 
Lewisham Hospital, 
including closing the A&E 

The court upheld a ruling 
last Tuesday that the 
minister could not make 

the closure without the 
support of local GPs and 
health professionals. 

If the closure had gone 
ahead, there would have 
been a knock-on effect at 
Queen Elizabeth Hospital 
in Woolwich, which would 
have been responsible for 
more serious accidents and 
emergencies, stretching 
its capacity. 

Cllr Chris Roberts, leader 
of the royal borough, said: 
“I am delighted with this 

“It means we can now 
work with the government, 
local clinicians and our 
local community to 
ensure that residents can 
continue to access the 
health services they need 
and deserve.” 

Adoption 'rewarding' says mum 

A MOTHER-of-two has described how 
adoption can be “rewarding” and an 
“excellent option” for families. 

Vivienne Osunde, a local resident, made 
her comments to promote Adoption Week, 
the national promotion which is running 
until Friday, which is being supported by 
the royal borough. 

“I had one daughter already from a 
previous relationship that ended,” said 
Vivienne. “I was a single parent and I 
wanted another girl so that my daughter 
had a sister. Adoption seemed a suitable.” 

Vivienne told GT she has a wonderful 
family and both her adopted daughter, 
adopted before the age of one in 1999, 
and her birth daughter, who is eight 
years older, share a healthy and close 

She added: “I think adoption is a very 
good option for families. 

“Sometimes it can be a bit complicated 
emotionally and you have to prepare for 
things that could go wrong or become 
complicated, so you have to approach 
adoption very strong. 

“But often it can be so seamless and 

such an easy going transition. I have been 
very lucky and I definitely have never 
regretted it at all.” 

Information on adoption is available all 
week from public libraries, community 
centres and cafes in the borough. 

Cllr Jackie Smith, cabinet member for 
children and young people, said: “We are 
always looking for new parents to adopt. 

“We have a lot of children that need 
a family and we hope that this week 
we are able to get more people to 
consider adoption as an option and get 
information out there that could make a 
real difference to the lives of children and 
families lives.” 

Changes to the law, as well as issues 
such as children’s behavioural problems 
or coming from a mixed race background 
present challenges to be aware of, she said. 

Greenwich is teaming up with other 
South London boroughs to host a free 
information event at Lambeth Town Hall 
on Thursday (November 7) at 6.30-8pm.

LIBRARIES across the Royal Borough 
of Greenwich are now offering free IT 
training to anyone who wants to know 
how to get started on a computer. 

It’s just one of the many fantastic 
services offered by the Royal Borough’s 
12 libraries - which have seen £lmillion 
invested in new computer equipment in 
recent times. 

And that’s not all - the Royal Borough is 
modernising and expanding its libraries 
at a time when other parts of the country 
are seeing cuts to their local library 
services. These important community 
hubs not only offer the ongoing staple of 
books, dvds magazines and newspapers, 
you can access training courses, take part 
in a huge range of events and activities, 
visit exhibitions and there’s something 
on offer for people of all ages. 

The expansion of library services in the 
borough is part of a big modernisation 
of services for residents, a programme 
which has seen two new bigger libraries 
open in recent years in Woolwich and 
Eltham, with a third new library on the 
way in East Greenwich. 

Visitor numbers to Woolwich library 
have doubled since the new bigger facility 
opened at the Woolwich Centre - which 
now sees half a million people through its 
doors in a year. 

Councillor Peter Kotz, the royal 
borough’s cabinet member for culture and 
creative industries said; “We recognise 
just how important our local libraries are 
to people, which is why we continue to 
invest in these services. 

“Unlike many other local authorities up 
and down the country, we have been able 
to protect frontline services through the 
cuts to public services and are still able 
to enhance and expand our cultural and 
leisure offer. 

“Libaries are a haven to people - they’re 
also a place people can go to get a new 
skill or to access training. 

THE borough's libraries are more than just 
places where you can borrow of a look or 
take out a DVD. You can check out new jobs 
on computer screens, pay bills, be taught IT, 
hear a talk, join a reading group, use free 
wi-fi, or view special exhibitions. DICK 
TOWNSEND-SMITH finds out more 

“This links into the work we are also 
doing to provide our residents with 
as much opportunity to access skills, 
training and work. 

“In this day and age a working knowledge 
of computer systems is essential in many 
types of jobs, so offering this training in 
our libraries on our new computers is one 
crucial way we can help residents to find 
work more easily.” 

And it’s not just training residents can 
access. There are a big range of events 
and activities for people of all ages. 

Among the many family -based activities 
taking place at the moment are classes in 
making traditional African jewellery and 
embroidering fabric banners.

A current exhibition in the Woolwich Centre 
looks at a restoration project at the Old Royal 
Naval College. IAN LAMONT took a look 

CREATIVE: Students wrote 
messages about how the ORNC 
project inspired them 

been a big them in 
Greenwich, a host 
borough for the 
London Olympics last 

Plenty of groups 
have been quick to 
grasp the notion, 
one being the Old 
Royal Naval College 

When embarking 
on the first stage of a 
£2million restoration 
project, they allowed 
residents to get 
right up close, via 
scaffolding, to works 
taking place in the 
Painted Hall, designed 
by Sir Christopher 
Wren with paintings 
by Sir James 

Now, the ORNC has unveiled an 
exhibition - on display at the Woolwich 
Centre’s library - of that initial 
£335,000 first phase, which was part 
funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. 

The ‘We Got Up Close’ display 
celebrates the efforts of many different 
groups who have become inspired by 
the project, one which gave the college 
the chance to widen its appeal. 

While only official restorers were 
actually allowed to touch or carry out 
the restoration work, 1,000 residents 
took the chance to get up really 
close by climbing especially erected 
scaffolding to view part of the Painted 
Hall ceiling. 

That led, for example, to students at 
Greenwich Community College (GCC) 
devising their own collage, producing 
a modern twist on the west wall. 

Under the guidance of Piers Goodman, 
an art teacher and quality manager 
for courses at GCC, the mixed ability 
students produced a contemporary 
collage called Say It How It Is. 

Piers said it gave students the 
chance to not only explore the art, 
but to examine the context and to 
look deeper at meanings behind the 

The students’ interpretation 
features today’s national politicians, 
Olympians and footballer David 
Beckham - as a cherub with a mobile 
phone and laptop. 

There is also a written panel by 
students of English for Speakers of 
Other Languages, who investigated 
the meanings of symbols in artwork, 
messages which help ‘decode’ a painting. 

Citations include: “Power is an 
important topic because it helps 
us understand the painting and its 
message about the greatness of Great 

Cherubs, they concluded, are 
traditionally thought of as 
supernatural beings acting as 
mediators between humans and 

gods - and symbols of 
innocence and peace. 

The exhibition, 
which runs until 
December 14, reflects 
how the community 
have embraced the 
restoration - so far. 

Speaking at the 
opening last week, Jo 
Hall, head of learning 
and interpretation 
at ORNC, said: “We 
took the opportunity 
created by this 
restoration to involve 
local groups. 

“We involved local 
people who might not 
have been to that part 
of Greenwich before. 
That’s why it’s nice to 
have this exhibition 

“When you go to the painted hall, it 
can seem very big. 

“Now, different groups have been in 
to look at it. 

“You can really see the difference 
between the third of the ceiling that 
has been restored and the rest. One 
looks clear and the other seems like 
you are looking through a curtain,” 
she added. 

The first stage of restoration, 
however, only made a small difference 
to one part of the vast painted hall, 
said Jo, who described the restored 
part as very bright but the rest 
seeming like it was in a dark room. 

“The next phase - doing the rest of 
the ceiling - will be bigger,” she said. 
With about 50 groups and personal 
donors raising the funds for the 
first part, the ORNC is busy putting 
together applications for further 
funding. Work is not likely to start 
before early 2015 and will take two 
years, she estimates. 

The restoration is the first at 
ORNC in 50 years and was filmed by 
University of Greenwich final year 
students, something which will soon 
be available on the college website. 

Writing for one display board in the 
exhibition, the students said: “One of 
the main challenges of filming in the 
Painted Hall has been dealings with 
the light levels. There is a surprising 
amount you can’t see on the camera 
which you can see in person so we 
tried to rectify this by bringing along 
some lights. 

“Unfortunately the lights we would 
normally use were not safe to use on 
the scaffolding tower, so it was back to 
the drawing board.” 

Other groups involved in the 
conservation wet Paine and Stewart, 
Martin Ashley Architects and Robert 
Owen Children’s Centre.

THERE are some special 
k K treats in store at this year’s 
< Global Fusion Music & 
Arts Royal Greenwich Jazz 
events at Charlton House. 

On Thursday November 
14 the legendary British jazz guitarist 
Jim Mullen will be headlining the bill, 
which is part of the Royal Greenwich 

Jim has been a major figure on the 
European jazz scene for many years, 
perhaps best known for his long and 
fruitful association with the late Dick 
Morrissey in Morrissey-Mullen. 

The British band Morrissey-Mullen 
had chart topping jazz success in the 
1970s and 1980s with their own unique 
style of jazz funk. 

Jim also worked with some of the 
greats like Brian Auger, Pete Brown, 
Georgie Fame, Mike Car and the 
Average White Band. 

He has even appeared with 
Greenwich’s own jazz singer/poet and 

project manager of Global Fusion 
Music and Arts, Louisa Le Marchand on 
her album ‘Jazzmoss’, back in 2008. 

Considered one of the most popular 
jazz groups in London, Morrissey- 
Mullen was led by Dick Morrissey on 
tenor and soprano saxes and flute, and 
Jim on guitar. 

They joined forces in 1975, playing 
together for 16 years, during which 
they came to be known as “Mr Sax and 
Captain Axe” because of their hallmark 
based around calls and responses 
between guitar and saxophone. 

On returning to Britain, they 
concentrated on the small club and pub 
circuit, with sell-out gigs including at 
The Half Moon, Putney for many years. 

In 1979, EMI commissioned them to 
enter the Abbey Road Studios to make 
“Britain’s first digitally-recorded single 
record”, a cover of the Rose Royce hit 
“Love Don’t Live Here Anymore”. Their 
1981 album Badness reached number 
one in the UK disco charts. 

Sale of art to benefit refugees 

REFUGEES in the 
Middle East will be the 
beneficiaries from an 
art auction on Saturday 
November 16. 

Pieces from world wide 
will be on sale at Mycenae 
House, Blackheath, from 
1.30pm to 4.30pm. 

They include a print 
of Allegory of Life and 
Death by Nanganaralil, 
an Australian, a timely 
offering as interest in 
native Australian art has 
been greatly increased by 
the recent exhibition at 
the Royal Academy. 

Another is called Horse- 
riding thief, (pictured) 
an oil by Rui, depicting a 
character from the Beijing 
Opera as one of the British 
officers who sacked the Old 
Summer Palace in 1860. 

The event has been 
organised by the Blackheath 
& Greenwich branch of the 
United Nations Association 
(UNA). About 40 items 
are expected to be sold. 
Previous auctions have 
raised £3,400 and £1,300. 

Lots can be viewed from 

1.30pm, with the auction 
starting at 2pm. 

Items have been provided 
by donors - not the artists - 
and come from many parts 
of the world including 
Africa, Europe, South 
America, and Australasia. 
There will also be a silent 
auction for some of the 
smaller items. 

Entrance costs £4 per 
person which includes a 
numbered catalogue plus 
a free glass of wine or soft 

Catalogue numbers will 
be entered into a prize 
draw, to be made at the 

end. Prizes include a large 
food hamper. 

Neville Grant, chairman 
of B&G UNA, said: “We 
have held two similar 
events which successfully 
raised good sums of money 

- it’s a fun way to spend an 

The message remains 
serious. He added: “The 
UN High Commission for 
Refugees (UNHCR) has 
helped millions in the past 

- but international support 
for the tragic victims of 
recent conflicts, such as 
Syria, is sorely stretched, 
as we have all seen on our 
TV screens. 

“It’s a very good cause, 
and I hope that as many 
people as possible can 
come, walk away with a 
lovely picture and a feeling 
they have done a little bit 
towards making someone’s 
life less miserable.” 

He thanked the Vanbrugh 
Community Association, 
which runs Mycenae 
House, and Mark Johnson- 
Brown, its manager, for 
donating the venue. 

November 5 2013 


For the first half of the evening, 
Tanzanian artist Freddy Macha will give a 
performance in his cinematic, panoramic 
style in a mix of words sounds and colours. 

The event is from 7.30-10pm. Tickets are £7, 

The second jazz event, funded by the 
royal borough as part of the London Jazz 
Festival and Royal Greenwich Jazz, is by the 
South African Trumpeter Claude Deppa on 
November 21. 

Claude will be performing music from his 
new album. It is a new departure for him. 
He is famous for his upbeat South African 
Township Jazz, while this album has brought 
together musicians from the Caribbean and 
Africa, so there is now a strong fusion of the 
various musical styles. 

Global Fusion Music & Arts will be bringing 
some top musicians from Paris for this event. 
The others are Jean-Paul Pierre Chabrele, 
Pape Herve Sambe, Denis Tchangou and 
Andre Mathurin. 

Charlton House’s doors open at 7pm. 

Good Times has 
fun messages 

Dumped by her husband, her father decrepit 
and a young teenage daughter in rebellion, 
Susan's life is in tatters and she's been left on 
the shelf like the videos in the charity shop 
where she works. 

But with humour and pathos and farcical 
turns, our heroine might turns things round. 
Good Things makes no claim to rich complex 
themes not to scaling emotional heights. 

It's an ordinary play - the speciality of the 
author, Liz Lochhead, Scotland's very own 
National Poet - about everyday folk and it 
resonates strongly throughout. 

It is extremely well written, the flow natural 
and even, a writer at the height of her powers. 
While it's best understood by an audience 
over 50, the sullen daughter jokes in 
particular, its essential truths are much 
broader. Abandonment, loneliness and crises 
of confidence will echo to young and old. 
Watch out for the shoes that Susan so covets - 
their meaning is much more than footwear. 
The set construction (Robert Hames and Roy 
Moore) is slick complementing the writing 
from farcical exits to monologues. 

Jackie Hartley's direction is delicate and 
thoughtful and her style is especially 
inclusive. The acting is competent with Janet 
Denne's Susan abrasive and touching and 
funny. Mark Higgins's Fraser complements her 
precisely, his timing particularly impressive. 
Louise Gaul, the shop manager, was once 
again most expressive but Nik Renouf (David) 
was the best of the bunch. He is natural and 
effortless and at ease on the stage lost all 
self-awareness from the start. 

The first night was a sell out and everyone 
loved it, the applause ringing out. These 
local events bring us closer together and are 
the life-blood of towns and communities. 

If actors and directors can give us so much 
commitment, the least we can do is attend. 

A thoroughly enjoyable evening 7/1 0

A is for applicants in unsatisfactory housing, including 
people moving due to demolition and those 
underoccupying their homes. 

B is for applicants the Royal Borough of Greenwich

Royal Borough of Greenwich’s Choice Based Lettings Scheme 



The housingmoves scheme is run 
by the Greater London Authority 
and is aimed at social housing 
tenants who want to move from 
one part of London to another. 

Priority is given to people who: 

• have more bedrooms than they currently need 

• want to move to be closer to employment or 
higher education 

• need to provide care for family members or friends. 
Tenants must have a clear rent account and 
no on-going record of anti-social behaviour. 

Royal borough tenants can register on the 
scheme and bid for council or housing 
association property in other parts of 
London. To register your interest please 

Small is beautiful 

the Under Occupation scheme 

If you are living in a Council property that is too big for 
you, we can help you to move to somewhere smaller. 
The Council will pay your removal costs, and £350 
for each bedroom gained. 

To join the scheme you must be willing to move to a 
home with two bedrooms less than you have now: 

• 3 bedroom to a I bedroom home 

• 3 bedroom parlour/4 bedroom 
to a I or 2 bedroom home 

• 5 bedroom to a 3 bedroom (or smaller) home

Paralympics inspires sponsors 

from page 24 C 

next summer for 40-minute matches, 
taking on three in a day. Teams travel 
from areas such as Portsmouth and Kent 
to take part. 

Greenwich’s team, ranging in age from 
10 upwards, has been busy preparing 
at the Waterfront Leisure Centre, on 
Thursdays and Saturdays, under coach 
and organiser Rhea Mackennon. 

A qualified football coach, Rhea also 
has a qualification in wheelchair football 
and has been coaching it for two years. 

“It’s all about having control of your 
chair, being able to mobilise it fully,” she 
explained of the two types of chairs, one 
with big wheels at the back and the other 
with a big wheel in the middle. 

For the 13-player squad, competition 
is just one aspect of the activity for a 
group of participants with a range of 

Rhea said: “It gives them the social 
aspect of life and is about meeting new 
people and being able to do something 
others can do and feel part of a team and 

“It gives them a real sense of 

Sharon Brokenshire, of the South 
London Special League, the umbrella 
organisation which helps run the power 
chair football club, was particularly 
pleased to secure sponsorship from a 
local group. 

“It make it so much more meaningful to 
have a local company supporting us.” 

The Co-op’s Sue Pollock said the 
inspiration to sponsor the group came 
from watching wheelchair sports at the 
Paralympics on television. 

She said: “I said to my colleague Jane 
Downes that the Paralympics had been 
brilliant and asked her how and where 
we could we find somewhere local to 

“She searched on the internet and 
found the powerchair football team and 
we set up meetings with Sharon and 
asked how we could help.” 

Sponsoring the kit was the answer and, 
to raise the money, Sue took on some 
teaching for about three weeks and also 
used some profits from the business. 

And having watched the youngsters at 
a training session she said: “It was really 
good to see the enthusiasm of the kids 
and what they are getting out of it. 

She said: “When they started their 
session they were really quiet, but by the 
end they were really noisy.”

Royal Greenwich has appointed Lovell and Asra Housing 
Association to deliver the transformation of the Woolwich Estates: 

• Connaught Estate 

• Morris Walk 

• Maryon Estate 

This will mean the demolition of the three estates to deliver 
new high quality mixed tenure homes; as well as bringing wider 
benefits to local communities. 

We look forward to seeing you at one of the events, which will be 
held at: 

1 . New Charlton Community Centre, 21 7 
Maryon Road, Charlton, London SE7 8DB 
Wednesday 13th 3.30pm - 7.30pm 

2. Greenwich Town Hall, Wellington Street, 
London SE18 6PW Saturday 16th November 
9am - 1 pm 

Lovell have drawn up design proposals for each of the three 
estates, with the intention of putting a planning proposal to the 
Royal Borough’s planning department by the end of the year. 

This is your opportunity to view these proposals and comment on 
the scheme. Any comments can then be considered as part of the 
proposal put forward for planning consideration. 

Two dates have been set aside to hold public exhibitions, 
which will be attended by the architects, Lovell, and Asra 
Housing Association. These people will be able to answer your 
questions on a range of topics including, layout, numbers and 
sizes of homes, their connection to the wider neighbourhoods,
